On Saturday, March 30, the City of Coral Gables will join millions around the world by turning off the lights at City Hall for an hour between 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. to bring awareness on why our Mother Nature matters. Earth Hour raises awareness on the important role of nature in our lives and the benefits it provides such as food, clean air, fresh water, and so much more. In collaboration with Miami Sierra Student Coalition to promote the Earth Hour campaign, a candlelight vigil featuring musical performances and information booths on climate action and sustainability will be held in front of City Hall. The University of Miami is also joining this symbolic event by turning off the lights at their Gables One Tower. You too can join this movement by turning off your non-essential lights and electronics for just one hour, beginning at 8:30 p.m.
